Traveling to Asia!

I am excited to be going out of the country to Taiwan & Cambodia next week! This couldn’t have come at a better time because I am newly engrossed in Asian Beauty! Hopefully I’ll bring back some products that I can review 😉

IMG_1367FullSizeRender (3) FullSizeRender_1 (2)

THE LAST OF MY MEMEBOX HAUUUL. Man, it’s been a crazy journey so far, from placing the order, to watching it ship and then waiting super impatiently for updated. This box is my favorite box out of my 3 orders, so I saved the best for last!!

1. Zamian Trouble Skin Handmade Soap Ac’xxii Full Size – 100g ($18)

Description: A handmade facial bar soap for troubled, sensitive skin types. The blend of tea tree oil, lavender oil, and manuka honey helps treat blemishes and brings back the skin’s natural glow from within. The opaque part of the soap targets redness and irritated spots on the skin while the middle translucent part of the soap deeply moisturizes and soothes the easily dehydrated and sensitive skin.

Directions: Lather the soap well in your hands and gently massage it onto the face. It can be used on the body too.

My take on it: The smell is SO VERY VERY strong. And by strong, I mean I could smell it before I cut open the packaging on my Memebox. I personally do not like the combination of tea tree oil and lavender, so to each their own. I didn’t anticipate it being so strong…It actually gives me a bit of a headache. I gave it a try and it is quite moisturizing. The soap is fairly thick and round and has a good grip to it. The soap is also very beautifully packaged in a nice cardboard box and the translucent center is a nice touch to it. I’m going to put this in my guest bathroom for guests to use as I think the smell is generally considered pleasant, I just personally don’t like tea tree or lavender. The price that Memebox listed is $18, but after doing a quick search, you can find it as cheap as $7, which I think I would repurchase in maybe a different scent.

2. TheYeon Jeju Hallabong Energy Mild All-in-one Serum Full Size Product : 100 ml ($20)

Description: TheYeon’s Hallabong series boost its organic formula made from the Hallabong which is a special type of orange cultiavated only in the Jeju Island and best loved for bursting with vitamin C and super sweet & tasty juiciness. Infused with other Jeju-born organic ingredients such as kiwi, broccoli, and aloe vera, this Energy Mild All-in-One Serum works to replenish, soften, and protect the skin.

Directions: Apply the serum evenly over your face and pat it in for full absorbance. It can be used in both the morning and the night.

My take on it: I WAS SO EXCITED ABOUT THIS! And it didn’t let me down!! Just reading the description makes my mouth water and it smells as delicious as it sounds!! I feel like I’m squeezing fresh oranges on my face!! It absorbs really easily and helps with my dry skin. It’s mild enough to be used in combination with other products in that I don’t feel like it weighs down my skin at all. When I use this in the morning, it helps me wake up with its pleasant citrus scent. This is a must buy if you love citrus! A lot goes a long way, and the bottle is big! I even used it during the middle of the day just as a booster for my skin and it worked well then too.

3. Pedison Nutritive Infusion Cream Full Size Product – 120ml ($29)

Description: A body cream carefully formulated for sensitive and dry skin, containing 0% preservatives, natural lipids, non-comedogenic ingredients, and 2 action hydration layer. This advanced combination of moisturizing agents penetrate deep into skin to deliver instant moisture resurge and restore comfort and suppleness. Its gentle, lightweight texture also leaves your skin feeling silky soft and well nourished.

Directions: Massage over legs, arm, back, and wherever needed to be moisturized.

My take on it: This is a perfect shape and size for carrying in my purse. It is truly scent free, so for those with sensitive skin, it’s great for you. The texture is more like a gel than a cream. It’s very light weight and it absorbed immediately. It is not oily at all and it left a nice matte feeling on my hands. I wouldn’t say it is good for extremely dry skin, or dry/cold weather. It lasted about 2 hours before my hands felt dry again. I love how it’s all natural ingredients and that I can use my phone without fear of oily finger marks.

4. Anacis Triactive Dermatis Intensive Cream Full Size Product – 20 ml ($12)

Description: This essential soothing cream suits even the most irritated and reactive complexions. Gentle enough for woman in pregnancy and even babies, this cream helps to relieve dryness and maintains the skin’s natural moisture balance. Infused with 27 natural extracts, green tea, mandarin, walnut, squalene, and much more–this ultra gentle soothing cream contains effective comforting properties to especially benefit traumatized, allergy-prone, thin, aging, sun-sensitive, tight and dehydrated skin types. A proprietary blend of STRUCTURINE peptides in the formula works to strengthen the skin’s cell walls and it forms a protective veil over the skin to prevent damage from external stressors.

Directions: Apply directly to face at the last stage of skin care routine.

My take on it: I didn’t give this product too much thought when I first saw it, but man after trying it last night and feeling my face this morning this is going on my repurchase list. When you first apply it, it may seem like it’ll be greasy but it dries and makes your skin feel so silky. It’s completely scentless so those with sensitive skin, this is perfect for you. It’s not heavy at all and I actually think after using it last night, I could use even a thicker cream over this as part of my personal skin care regime. I patch tested it on my neck first and I was tempted to use it as a body cream because it really did make my skin so smooth. I’m not sure which of the 27 natural extracts is doing this, but what a pleasant surprise!!

5. Migabee Botanical Moisture Mist Full Size Product – 150 ml ($22)

Description: This is a botanical body mist formulated from natural herbal ingredients such as aloe vera, verbena, red ginseng and camellia oil. ITs gentle formula is fast-absorbing and works to rejuvenate and de-stress dry, tired skin.

Directions: Spray the mist al over the body morning and night after a shower.

My take on it: When I read the description, I wasn’t sure what to expect. It sounded very similar to the TonyMoly Pocket Bunny Mist (which smells delicious) but I ended up reselling that product because the sprayer on the Pocket Bunny barely sprays and it took multiple applications to cove my whole face. The Migabee Mist is WAY better! Oh my gracious, and it smells GREAAAAT!! That was my biggest worry when trying out this mist (thus I tried it on my hand first) that it would smell, well, herbal. It smells like verbana, without the heavy lime, like most western products use and I can definitely smell the camellia oil which mixed with the verbana is heavenly!! This is a staple for my purse now, I’m going to try to get samples from other products in this line to see if they smell this good. In regards to moisture, it helped keep my skin soft after showering and although it states it’s a body spray, I actually used it on my face yesterday out of curiosity and just because I thought it smelled so nice. It works well as a refresher on the face (although it is scented, so sensitive skin fellows beware) but the spray applicator is GREAT! I can get my face in one go.

6. Pureplus + Lip Treatment Full Size Product  – 10 g ($9)

Description: High concentrates of collagen deliver rich nourishment and a lasting suppleness to dry, chapped lips. IT also contains various nutrients such as snail mucus extracts, shea butter, grape seed oil, hyaluronic acid and Vitamin E for protecting lips from further dehydration and damage.

Directions: Apply directly over lips as often as needed.

My take on it: It is cute packaging and I’m very lucky I got strawberry, because I LOVE strawberry things! The consistency is very sticky, think of thick lip gloss. I enjoy the scent, it smells like artificial strawberry candies which is fine by me. It has a nice glossy sheen and when you first put it on because it’s so sticky, it feels almost awkward like it’s not really doing much but after a few minutes or so it does seem to moisturize my lips and even itself out. Although it does have some moisturizing properties, I wouldn’t go so far to call it a “treatment” but as a gloss I think it works great. I would go as far as using this over my lipstick as a last layer for ensuring that my lips don’t look dry from the lipstick and creates that nice gloss effect. Would I buy this again? I’m not too sure, I think what it does is decently effective, but if I was in the market for a treatment, this would not be the first thing that comes to mind. The packaging is adorable and I think it’d be a great gift to someone as well!


The box as a whole. This was by far, my FAVORITE Memebox that I’ve ever ordered! I loved 5 out of the 6 items and would repurchase all of them for different purposes. I was really surprised by the Migabee Botanical Mist along with the Anacis cream. I was already super pumped for the Jeju Hallabong Serum and it did not disappoint. I paid $35.99 (including shipping) for this box and this box is valued at $110. What a deal!!!! Even the items that I did not rave about, are definitely usable!! Which is great!

If they ever restock this box, I may even buy another one, just to have some backup stored of my favorite products.
